Sunset Blvd. Fence Art
City of Renton Street Maintenance teams hard at work to improve the NE Sunset Blvd. fence.
The Sunset Blvd. Fence is a 810 ft. long fence in the Sunset Area, which is in need of upgrades. This fence is a prominent feature along the major thoroughfare in the Sunset Neighborhood. As you drive up the hill heading west, it is one of the first features you see. And the current impression it gives does not reflect the extensive public investments, nor the diverse, vibrant community in which it’s located.
This fence has been identified as a blank canvas that can be used to welcome people to the neighborhood and build a sense of place in Sunset. This project has received funding, and we have brought two local artists on board to pursue an engaged placemaking project to create community-inspired and student-crafted public art.
The project’s design was informed by three community meetings. It is still being finalized, but renderings of the design concept can be seen below.
